Actor Margot Robbie has been revealed as Nissan’s new electric vehicle (EV) ambassador by racing the carmaker’s radical all-electric BladeGlider sports car around the world-famous Monaco Grand Prix circuit, at midnight. The Nissan BladeGlider will be on display at the 87thGeneva International Motor Show from March 7th to 19th, 2017.
The Suicide Squad and The Wolf of Wall Street actor put the radical three-seater through its paces around the closed Monaco street circuit before racing another BladeGlider. The pair of 272PS performance cars raced through the iconic Tunnel and diced with each other along Massenet before finishing in the glamour of Casino Square.
The prototype 190km/h Nissan BladeGlider, which hits 100km/h in less than five seconds, is aimed to challenge the conventional thinking of what an all-electric sports car could look like in the future. The prototype is part of Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility vision of how cars should be driven, powered and integrated into society.
Speaking on the occasion, Margot Robbie said, “It’s a really exciting time for electric vehicles. More people are choosing to go electric, leading the way to a more sustainable future and the Nissan BladeGlider hints at the future of smarter performance cars.”
